Poetry by Makenzie

Live

Sometimes I don’t know about this old world

It’s so broken and bruised

Sometimes I don’t know about this life of mine

But I suppose

That it’s the only one I’ve got.

So, while the sun shines…

I will dance with the wilds

And run to catch the wind

I will soak in the rain

And catch all the fireflies I can

This life is the only one I get, so I will live

 

They say that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone

But what about the things you already have?

Warm sun on your face

You’re surrounded by love.

If you don’t believe me just look up, and…

 

Dance with the wilds

And run to catch the wind

Soak in the rain

And catch all the fireflies you can

This life is the only one you get, so live.

 

Tonight I find myself empty

It seems like for the thousandth time

It’s in the dark of these times

I could really just…give…up…

But then I remember that this is the only life I got

And to pack it all in this soon would just be a waste

So I’ll…

 

Dance with the wilds

And run to catch the wind

I’ll soak in the rain

And catch all the fireflies I can

For sometimes it seems like this life is a wretched dark place

But it’s the only one I’ve got, so….

live
